  • Description

    A special squad of the Hong Kong police intercepted a junk carrying narcotics worth more than GBP1 million sterling (2.5 million US dollars approx.) on Tuesday (May 8). The narcotics were unloaded in Hong Kong from the captured junk after the squad intercepted it on a tip-off.

    The cargo was the largest single seizure in Hong Kong this year, according to police sources. They said the drugs were believed to have come from Thailand. Thai police co-operated with the Hong Kong force in the operation. Earlier this month, South Vietnamese naval staff stopped a Thai junk off the South Vietnam coast and seized a cargo of narcotics -- also believed destined for Hong Kong.
